A very more-ish slice containing chocolate, peanut butter and oats.

Peanut butter oat slice (800x600)

This is a really easy no-bake slice recipe – one of my favourites, and also another where strong willpower is required for portion control.  A chocolate peanut butter slice, full of oat-y goodness.  No problems with the gluten or dairy-free opportunities, just make sure you use certified gluten-free oats and dairy-free margarine or coconut oil with dairy-free milk (i.e. almond, coconut etc).  But do not leave out the peanut butter.  Do not ever leave out the peanut butter.  That’s the law!

I have made these in mini-muffin tins, in an effort to only have one at a time … works quite well until you realise you’ve eaten more than one!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup butter
  2. 2 cups white sugar
  3. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  4. 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  5. 1/2 cup milk
  6. 1/2 heaping cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. 3 cups rolled oats
Instructions
  1. Line an 8×8 or 9×9 pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray and set it aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugars, cocoa powder, milk and heat over medium-high to high heat, stirring to encourage the ingredients to melt and combine. This can also be done in a microwaveable bowl using the microwave.
  3. Turn the heat off or remove from the microwave and add the peanut butter and vanilla extract (careful when you add the vanilla, it could bubble up a bit on you) and stir until smooth. Then add the oats and stir to coat.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading it evenly into the pan.
  5. Place pan into the freezer and freeze at least 30 minutes, or until bars have set up, before slicing and serving.
